<face palm> its common knowledge/science that the more cylinders you have inline, the smoother, more torque and easier to tune it is. When was the last time you ever saw a BMW with a V6?
Here is another article (From CNET Roadshow) confirming an upcoming electric vehicle and hybrid model at the Tokyo Motor Show. They didn't confirm model or body type (keeping it on the DL to make us hungry for it). But that at least supports the rumors that something is coming!Yea, I'm saying its not a "news" site, or reputable like MT or C&D. If you search with the title from your link, you get a lot of "rumor sites" and no real articles. Hence, fake news. There's even a Lexus site that claims Toyota and Lexus will use that platform, which I'm guessing is pure drivel too. I too wish it would happen, cause an online will be more powerful than a V any day of the week, but i highly doubt it.
Thanks for the updated article! I personally want to also thank Tesla for making electric cars a real viable option for the masses!Mazda Direct 6FR Coupe (2022 Debut)
The large-class 4-door coupe, which can be said to be a commercial version of "VISION COUPE" exhibited at the previous Tokyo Motor Show, is expected to have a dignified body size of 1.9m wide and 1.9m wide.
There is information that Mazda is also developing a two-door model using the same platform. This is also great expectations!

"A manufacturer that promotes a brand strategy needs a flagship model that represents the manufacturer. Currently, the flagship model for Mazda, which is making every effort to improve its brand value, is the FR coupe equipped with this straight-6.
The 3L, 6-straight gasoline engine fits in the heart of the elegant 4-door coupe body that brings together the highly acclaimed Mazda design.
The so-called SKTACTIV-X engine, which employs the compression ignition method “SPCCI”, which is also developed by Mazda and also uses an ignition plug, is combined with the mild hybrid system “M Hybrid” for ignition control.
No announcements have been made regarding output, etc., but in order to demonstrate its presence in this class, there is no doubt that development is still progressing with the aim of 350 ps class power.
Mazda's new straight 6 FR coupe is so attractive. After its release at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2019, its debut will be a little ahead of 2022, but the price is a concern.
Mazda always says "BMW, Audi quality car at the price of Volkswagen", so from that, it is expected to be around 5 million to 6 million yen."
i like thisI just hope this is true! If so, I can start saving and be ready for it!
transfers CDGMazda has already said it's working on an inline-six engine and rear-drive platform. This model debuting at the Tokyo Motor Show could be it.www.motor1.com
